La Clemenza di Tito

Sunday, November 19, 2017 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Mercy prevails over jealousy, revenge and an attempted murder that sets Rome on fire in Mozart's last opera, La Clemenza di Tito.

Love and Information

Friday, November 10, 2017 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm

The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, Kogod Theatre

Someone can’t get a signal. Friends debate the existence of God. A man has a secret. A scientist dissects a brain. A person is in love and that love can’t be reciprocated. Experiencing this kaleidoscope of vignettes is like watching a stranger’s Snapchats – the characters may be unfamiliar and unrelated to each other, but the emotions are instantly recognizable. In this relentlessly paced serio-comedy, celebrated British playwright Caryl Churchill asks how our infinite access to inspiring, mundane, crucial, insignificant information affects how we connect to each other – and ourselves.
